2023 Holy Week Liturgy | Day 1

Palm Sunday | Celebration & Triumph

BASED ON JOHN 12:12-19

Hosanna! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!

The people welcomed Jesus with open arms.

They praised him as their Saviour.

Celebrate the coming of the Messiah, throw a massive party!

Pour gold glitter into the jar. 

 People were expecting something amazing to happen this week.

Something that would restore the glory of Israel.

The gold symbolizes the hope of a new kingdom, full of majesty and riches.

In a sense, they were right…but it would happen differently than expected.

We celebrate today because we know how this week ends.

Even with the darkness in the middle

We celebrate the coming of Jesus, our Saviour!
